Scope and content

The sales brochure for the sale of Weald Farm, Thursday May 13th 1943. It was being sold because farmer Mr W.J. Butt had died and it was bought by George Collins forĀ£9,500.
George had come up from Somerset to see a friend who farmed near-by and went to the sale out of curiosity. Most local farmers knew that much of the land was to be requisitioned by the war ministry for over 70 masts and the creation of Signal Station for the Royal Corps of Signals, but George didn't. But it was legally agreed that if and when the military no longer needed the land and buildings they would become the property of the Collins family. Simon Collins now rents out the buildings as two business parks.
